Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Pennsylvania, believes it has skillfully moved some instruction online without sacrificing the small institution’s best qualities that its 2,500 students expect, according to Inside Higher Education. A 25-person task force with representatives from various departments, the faculty and the student body began investigating online learning options about four years ago and made several recommendations tailored to the college to move it into the realm. The group discouraged the development of massive open online courses (MOOCs). As a result, this summer the college is offering 19 courses online with a maximum of 23 students in each, most with a liberal arts focus.
